Organizing Writing Supplies!

Just popping in to write a quick post about my plan for organizing Writing Workshop supplies for next school year! As you saw in my recent post about my Target haul, I bought some really cool mini-drawers to organize things.

Well...I decided to get a little crafty! (Shocker!! I'm not one who is typically very crafty...) Enter hot glue gun stage left.

The next step was to start cutting out each little tiny label from the "Supply Labels for Your Writing Center" pack from Teachers Pay Teachers.

I got each one cut out and then organized them by how I would glue them onto the drawers. I decided that three different colors in a drawer would work well. We will see...

I also decided to include a drawer for erasers, date stamps, glue sticks, and scissors, since the students would be using those items frequently during Writing Workshop. Speaking of date stamps, check these out!! (Ignore all the practice stamping... I couldn't resist!)

Okay, back to explaining my Writing Workshop drawers! After I organized them by drawer, I got my hot glue gun out and ready to go. Needless to say, I burnt my fingers at least twice. Okay, maybe three times. Don't judge me!

Here's the final product! Drumroll, please?

Yes, the date stamps one is wonky. I need to see if I can make it cute and matching. Ignore the date stamps one. At least I used my nice handwriting instead of making it too sloppy. And there you have it! Simple drawers for the students to use while they're working on writing their lovely stories of dogs, rainbows, and unicorns!

Thanks for reading! I am linking up with Tara's Monday Made It for this post, even though I'm late to the party. =)

  3. I used to want to be a teacher! Confession: Mostly just so I could have an excuse to excessively shop for school supplies and make bulletin boards. But now I just buy them and stash them and make bulletin boards at home (sometimes).
